@ bowski, the bill isn't encouraging an investigation into every miscarriage, it was written to address clinical abortions and intended terminations. Most miscarriages wouldn't be logged or even reported. But in the case that a questionable event was investigated, it wouldn't be difficult (or harmful to the woman) to determine whether the death was natural, intentional, or a result of neglect.

@ crystemp and Phoneybone: I think both of you missed the part about the mother having the burden of proof showing that she did everything possible to prevent the miscarriage.
So much for Conservatives wanting government out of our personal lives, eh?

Did these two even read the bill? It states prenatal murder, not miscarriage. Also, the consequence isn't necessarily death sentence.

The brief mentions multiple times "prenatal murder." No need to read past such a retarded construct. Next stop: make masturbation illegal with the preconception murder bill. Or the act of roosterblocking a dude who was about to get some: predoingit murder.

just one more
I read the meaty part of the bill (all except the "corrections" part which is pretty much typo-fixing) and at no point did it mention explicitly the "death penalty", simply that (paraphrase) "abortion will be considered a felony crime," which I'm guessing felony crimes can be punished by the death penalty. So yeah, not trying to be pro-republican here (hate left wing super religious types anyway) but just the sand grain of truth on the beach of crazy news outlets.

BTW, the bill

MSNBC left out this gem, clearly absolving miscarriages:

'Prenatal murder' means the intentional removal of a fetus from a woman with an intention other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus; provided, however, that if a physician makes a medically justified effort to save the lives of both the mother and the fetus and the fetus does not survive, such action shall not be prenatal murder.
Such term does not include a naturally occurring expulsion of a fetus known medically as a 'spontaneous abortion' and popularly as a 'miscarriage' so long as there is no human involvement whatsoever in the causation of such event.

tl;dr - abortion = murder; miscarriage not-equal murder

If you thought for one second that this was anything but a smear on the Repubs, If you thought for even half a second that this was as presented and couldnt see it for what it was, well, you are so stupid that I ask you to please kill yourself before you breed and pollute the earth with more fools like yourself.

Well, once again hysteria wins out over actually reading the law. Just another day in the MSM. Never miss a chance to slander a Republican, that's the MSM motto, eh?

Stupid Republicans need to crack a science book every once and a while. Miscarriages happen to A LOT of people! They're completely normal. There is no reason to interrogate women who have them.

Not to mention that fact that the law would be unconstitutional. Abortion was decided by the supreme court to be a constitutional right granted under the 14th amendment (don't ask me why) and of course we all know that a state cannot take away a right granted by the constitution.

original post by DingDingDong now on the second page of comments

Come on people, obviously horrible journalism at work here.
I'm not saying I agree with the bill, but at least look at the actual text:
the bill

(2) 'Prenatal murder' means the intentional removal of a fetus from a woman with an
115 intention other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus; provided, however,
116 that if a physician makes a medically justified effort to save the lives of both the mother
117 and the fetus and the fetus does not survive, such action shall not be prenatal murder.
118 Such term does not include a naturally occurring expulsion of a fetus known medically
119 as a 'spontaneous abortion' and popularly as a 'miscarriage' so long as there is no human
120 involvement whatsoever in the ca

ukulelemike you are absolutely wrong in relation to how "natural" spontaneous abortions are. It is an extremely common phenomena across species and cultures. In fact, many studies have suggested that that many miscarriages occur prior to any conscious awareness of pregnancy. Fertilization is a crap shoot. Just because an egg becomes fertilized it does not mean that the resulting foetus will be viable.

You are correct that any of those things you mentioned may increase the likelihood of a miscarriage, but some estimates suggest that the majority (60-80%) are due to genetic abnormalities of either the sperm or egg, not caused by environmental stresses (the upper bounds of this statistic is reached with increasing age).

You could find out all of this information with a quick read from the Mayo Clinic if you so choose.

"yet it shouldn't happen much at all" ukelele, do you realize how many miscarriages are from genetic problems or chromosonal abnormalities? how many embryos fail to thrive because of THEIR dna makeup? it happens ALL THE TIME and it's not the mother's fault. what about women who miscarry over and over again while trying to have a baby? or the ones who have to go into IVF or surrogacy? is it because they're all crackwhores doing likes of coke and shots of jager? yes, some women make the unfortunate choice of drinking or doing drugs when pregnant but that is NOT the biggest contributing factor to miscarriages.
